just out from louisiana senator mary landrieu, she is commending the coast guard for the seven and rescue operation that it is performing right now, but also saying that a full investigation ought to be completed into exactly what happened here. now, obviously, drilling for oil and gas can be dangerous business, but it's pretty unusual to have these rigs blow up like that, isn't it? >> that's true. this is an unusual occurrence. this doesn't happen very often. there are 30,000 workers on these rigs every day out in the gulf of mexico, and they follow stringent safety procedures. this is inherently dangerous work, and they do prepare for that, the coast guard inspects them for safety procedures, as well. so they go through rigorous training, they know what to do, and it's a credit to -- you know, we are searching for the 11 crew members and that is our focus, but the more than 115 that have been accounted for is a testament to how they're trained, their ability to evacuate the rig, but all the supporting cast members. there were more than 30 waters in the boat at the time of the
